New Balance 860v9 Men
Big G Says…
You don't get many more conventional shoe companies than New Balance. While it has recently deviated off its well-trodden path of making solid reliable shoes by introducing more fashion orientated models and has a tendency to look back at Its retro models, New Balance still stays faithful to some of its stalwarts...and the 860 is one of them.
It is hard to write a review of the v9 after everything has been said in the v8 review. A cosmetic brush was used to alter the look of the midsole and outsole, but certainly no changes of any substance. The upper as is often the case has been tinkered with. A more breathable mesh upper has certainly improved the fit ad feel and to NB's credit, the aesthetic look of the shoe has also been upgraded.
But I digress...this is a no-risk buy from the stability category and as it is generally available in a wider fitting in both men and ladies models, the correct length and width can be achieved.
